Community Prevention JJDP Act Title V
The Title V Community Prevention Grants Program, established under the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (JJDP) Act, is a Federal grants program to fund collaborative, community-based delinquency prevention efforts. This program, working from a research-based framework, focuses on reducing risks and enhancing protective factors to prevent youth from entering the juvenile justice system. Funding that is available under the Title V Program can only be awarded to units of general local government (any city, county, town, or tribe) in North Dakota that meet all of the eligibility requirements specified in the JJDP Act.

The Juvenile Accountability Block Grant (JABG) Program, authorized through the Omnibus Crime Control and Safe Streets Act of 2002, was established to strengthen the juvenile justice system by encouraging states and local jurisdictions to implement accountability-based programs and services. Pursuant to Program requirements, a percentage of JABG program funds received by the State are "passed-through" to units of general local government in the State of North Dakota that certify to the requirements of the JABG program. JABG program funds are made available to units of local government based upon their relative share of law enforcement expenditures and part 1 violent crimes.
